Inner Wheel Arch Repair

I was quite proud of myself for making this repair panel, so I was looking forward to welding it in.




So there I was feeling all proud and thought that I should try to see how the boot floor extension panel I got from Moss fitted.

I very quickly realised I had made a mistake.



The curve I created followed the rusty original which must have moved from its correct position. I should have used the extension panel as a guide because they are designed to be welded together and need to fit snugly and allow the extension panel to sit low enough so that it is level with the boot floor. Mine was too high! 

So I had to cut into the curve and straighten it and re-weld it in the correct position.




Lesson learnt for the other side which will also need the same fix.
